before the outbreak of war.
Bruce Cabot, Lynne Overman and
Gene Lockhart are prominent in the
supporting cast. All of the original
Sigmund Romberg music is played
during the show, including such fav-
orites as "One Alone," "The Desert
Song," "The Riff Song" and "Ro-
mance."
At the State .
The colorful saga of one of Ameri-
ca's greatest " frontiersmen will be
brought to the screen today at the
State Theatre in "Buffalo Bill."
Joel McCrea plays the title role
and Maureen O'Hara and Linda
Darnell are also starred. Filmed in
technicolor near Kanab, Utah, the
picture shows the sweep and glory of'
the old West. A mighty buffalo hunt
for which 1,200 untamed buffaloes
maintained by the government for
the Crow. Indians were used adds
realism.
The spectacle of the Sun Dance,
strange torture ritual of the Indians
of that day, will be one of the high-
lights of the film. The supporting
cast includes such stars as Thomas
Mitchell,iEdgar Buchanan and An-
thony Quinn.

"I picked out a tune on the piano,
and Jim wrote the lyrics for it," and
as simply as that Ken Pierson ex-
plained how, he and Jim Rhind
formed the song writing team that
has provided Co. D's "Rumor Has It"
with its ten original musical numbers.
The score for the show illustrates
the versatility of the composers, for
the tunes range from the romantic

waltz "So Much in Love" to the be-
guine, "The Jacqueline," and includes
several novelty numbers. For the
most part, the music was written first
and then the lyrics were fitted to the
melody.
The music for "Rumor Has It" is
not the first work that Pfc. Ken
Pierson and Pfc. Jim Rhind have
done together. They already have
to their credit "The Pranks Are
Coming," "Manila Bay," and several
other songs, and copyright is pending
for the music from the show.
Pierson was a student at the Uni-
versity of Newark where he was pres-
ident of the college dramatic society,
The Mummers. He is a jazz author-
ity, and plays the trumpet. He claims
that his tunes occur to him "any-
where at all, perhaps in the shower
or while I'm walking down the
street."
Rhind attended Hamilton College
and Ohio State University before
entering the Army. "After I hear one
of Ken's tunes, the first thing I have
to do is figure out the mood. Some
songs just sound as though they
should have 'glad we're together
again' lyrics. Others are definitely
I miss you since you've gone away'
songs. Once that's decided, the hard-
est work is over." He claims that the
only "textbook" he uses is a pocket
yhyming dictionary.
When the songs are in final form,
they are turned over to Pfc. Bob
Commanday and Pfc. Dick Thomas,
who a're arranging them for the
singing chorus and for the 12 piece
band that will perform them in the
show.
Judging from the response of the
singers and musicians who are re-
hearsing the music now, the score
for "Rumor Has It" will be one of the
show's leading features.
